    Just so you understand, Man of the Year, is not a prize. You don't get it for your good deeds.

    While RS Mag is loving and lapping up the press, the cop that took the pic of him being brought out of the boat is being fired.

    Yup, this has been all over the news. This has been all over my local news for the past couple of days. I really don't know what to think. While I understand why he's upset over the RS story, I don't think he made a very good decision by releasing pictures that may be considered to be "evidence."

    pretty disgraceful front cover in my opinion which glorifies Dzhokhar Tsarnaev, nothng like exploiting a tradegy isnt that right rolling stone?
    Where is the glorification? he was on the front cover because he;s the subject of the story, Rolling Stone can't help it if he happens to be photogenic. I think people are just disturbed by the idea that he didn't have a beard and one tooth and wasn't laughing manically. Ultimately its the 'normalness' of these people that makes people uncomfortable but also fascinating and important. Hence the need to write about it.

    While I agree, it's hard for me to really get worked up over stuff like that.

    But they can help what material they use and how they present it

    So they should have choosen an unphotogenic photo just to prove he's a bad person? maybe photoshop in a scar or two? Clearly Disney has a lot to answer for, people still expect the media to infantalize them as much as possible.

    Also how is this different from all the films/books/documentaries/Broadway musicals about Hitler?

    Compared to what, British tabloids?

    From what I have seen, the entirety of the UK feeds of their disgusting tabloids.

    You should not be throwing stones while living in that glass house.

    Send one American seedy rock star to Britain, and the UK tabloid reporters go into a feeding frenzy.

    Then the public feed like sharks buying the garbage.
